1995 Column shifter gernaded/disintegrated

Column shift disintegrated on my GFs 1995 Blazer. We bought this a couple months ago at 91k miles, shifter felt a little wonky, now I know why. I've never seen this type of failure before. You can see the metal has sheared right at the two mounting points. What year columns can I swap parts from? just 95? 95-97? newer? Also I can force what's left in there to go into P R N and D, anyone see any problem driving it 170 miles back home with the shifter fubared so I can work on it in my garage instead of the street with minimal tools?

Re: 1995 Column shifter gernaded/disintegrated

Scott Burch off the S10 Addictions and S10 Friends facebook groups helped me out and is shipping me some replacement parts. I'll try post some pictures to make a how to of the repair. He said it actually is a common issue. If you need any steering column parts or assistance, I suggest reaching out to him on Facebook.
